Cambridge Neuroscience are hosting the Clinical Neuroscience and Mental Health Symposium, 29th – 30th September 2009, at West Road Concert Hall, Cambridge.

This Symposium presents the science and practice of brain sciences and mental health with an emphasis on disorders that are common and place a large burden on society. Six cross-cutting themes highlight the principles of contemporary translational neuroscience with symposium sessions covering: Genes to Endophenotype, Pathways and Pathogenesis, Early Detection and Biomarkers, Decision-making, Mechanism-based Therapeutics, Injury and Repair. An outstanding line up of local and international speakers will discuss their research on Addiction, Alzheimer’s and Dementia, Depression, Huntington’s Disease, Mood Disorders, Multiple Sclerosis, Obesity, Pain, Parkinson’s Disease, Schizophrenia, Spinal Cord Injury and Stroke.

This event provides an opportunity for Cambridge Neuroscientists to present their work to colleagues as well as be inspired by the latest research from leaders in the field. To present a scientific poster at this Symposium please submit your abstract, via the registration page, by the 31st July 2009.

The first day of the Symposium will conclude with a public music recital orchestrated by Dr. Cheryl Frances-Hoad, Composer in Residence at the Department of Psychiatry, Cambridge. The second day will close with a Cambridge Neuroscience dinner and Ceilidh Dance.

This event is free to attend for all Cambridge Neuroscientists although registration for this event is required. Please visit: http://www.neuroscience.cam.ac.uk/cnmhs/. We hope that you will be able to join us for this event.
